My beloved Sister How warmly I have desired, and how earnestly I have endeavored frequently, to bring my mind into a con- dition attractive to those who have exchanged all the tur- moils of our Earth-life, for the quiet, the peaceful, the clair voiant [sic] and the clairaudient state in which I seem to see [underline] thee [/underline]. I long, oh how often, to have communion with thee here, tho to see thee can hardly be expected; yet thou hast been described by [strikethrough] th [/strikethrough] two or three mediums, pretty well. Come with some Medium whose powers thou hast made thyself acquainted with, and through whose organiza- tion thou could furnish us with all needful knowledge, with regard to our present course, and our future duties. We are to have a meeting at the Centre [sic] on the 26th inst., and the medium may spend a day or two with us in thy old home, which I think must appear to thee much as it used to after thou left it. If this should not appear to be the medi- um of thy choice, it would be gratifying to know thro'[sic] her or some other gifted one, that thou wert one of our company, and also that our dear Thomas was with thee; and as we are anxiously interested in Spiritual- ism / more for your dear children's sake than for ourselves; we should rejoice to have thy aid in our spiritual prog- ress. I have before employed J.V. Mansfield but with- out much satisfaction, as he was unwell and attending a large convention, the bustle and confusion of which was
unfavorable to the quiet necessary to his business; but I have confidence in him, though but little in myself, fearing I may not merit such an answer to this as my soul needs and desires. All this thy beloved husband unites in. with thy lonely but affectionate Sister Ann King.
